Taxidermy Nirvana At The Rahmat International Wildlife Museum & Gallery

Medan, in Indonesia, has one of the best animal taxidermy collections in the world. Why? Its founder, Dr H. Rahmat Shah, is an avid hunter and he's crisscrossed the world, shooting everything possible. Their loss of life is the museum goer's gain. It's an amazing place, both in the variety of animals and the quality or preservation and display.

Various cats getting busy. The museum loosely divides animals geographically and/or by similar species. Noah couldn't have done a better job.

Two animals of the "Big Five" trophy animals to hunt. Can you name the other three species?

Important birds.

Big horned thing and a snarling hippo, blue light for water mood.

The  furry behemoths in the bear cave, not happy a wolf is crashing the party. BYOB. Bring your own bird.

Getting local to Sumatra, the orangutan. Formal warthog portrait.

Tigers, showing what they do best.

The "Big Five" animals to hunt: lion, rhino, elephant, leopard and panda. Oh no, not a panda! Correction, the last animal of the five is the cape buffalo.
